Green Onion Cheese Ball

This is a family favorite recipe.  Not only is it delicious, it is an incredibly easy cheese ball recipe.  We made this as a super bowl appetizer, but pretty much have it at every family gathering – camping, birthday parties, Thanksgiving, etc.  The only problem we run into is if you put it out too early in the party, no one is hungry for the rest of the meal!

One thing I have recently discovered is Pretzel Crisps.  They are delightful and work perfectly with a cheese ball.

Green Onion Cheese Ball Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 8 oz packages of Cream Cheese
  • 2 TBS Bon Apetit seasoning
  • Green onions
  • Slivered almonds (optional)
  • Favorite crackers

Cheese Ball Instructions

Soften cream cheese.  I will either leave it on the counter for 30 minutes or so or put the cream cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Once softened put in mixing bowl.

Wash green onions.

Chop green onion.  I don’t measure the green onion, just determine how much green onion you want in the cheese ball and go with it.

Place green onions in mixing bowl with cream cheese.

Put two tablespoons of bon apetit seasoning in mixing bowl with cream cheese and green onions.

Mix ingredients together until well blended.

Put cheese ball mix into small bowl or shape into a ball and cover with slivered almonds.  If I’m trying to be fancy, I take the time to form the ball and cover with almonds.  My family is low maintenance, so I generally fore go the messy hands and place it in a small glass bowl.  Let cheese ball sit in fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.  It helps the seasoning blend in.

Place your favorite crackers around the cheese ball on a large glass platter.  If you haven’t tried Pretzel Crisps yet, get some today!  They are delightful and work perfect with a cheese ball.

This is a quick prep, quick clean-up, easy, and delicious cheese ball recipe that your guests will love.  What is your favorite cheese ball recipe?  How about your favorite party treat
